Stamford Bridge set to being in more new faces.
Chelsea up bid for Moses after £4m rebuff as forward tells Wigan he wants out
Chelsea will return with an improved offer for Victor Moses after seeing a £4million offer rejected by Wigan.
Manager Roberto Di Matteo is determined to land the Nigeria forward despite seeing his initial bid rejected by Wigan chairman Dave Whelan. The European champions are preparing a new bid closer to £5m.

It may take a bid well in excess of £5m to persuade Latics owner Dave Whelan to sell their prized asset but one wonders what would happen if the Nigerian international were to put in a transfer request, which may lead Wigan to have to consider what may be deemed a derisory offer over being stuck with an unhappy player.
The young winger showed great potential over the final weeks of the last campaign when he helped inspire Roberto Martinez’s side into top four form to help pull the DW Stadium side away from the drop zone.
Having lost Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou the West London club may well be looking to bring in alternative attacking options, preferably youthful ones as Roberto Di Matteo plans for the future.
The arrivals of Marko Marin and Eden Hazard have already boosted the Blues squad and Moses could add a new direct attacking force to the Chelsea squad. The Stamford Bridge side appear ready to make big moves in the transfer market as Roman Abramovich looks to flex his financial muscles after landing the Champions League last term.
